Pinnacle Peak is a rocky crag located within North Cascades National Park and is one of several peaks that form a crescent around Colonial Glacier. It's situated midway between Paul Bunyans Stump and Pyramid Peak. Access from the Pyramid Lake Trail, from the lake locate and follow a climber's path up the long ridge to the base of Pyramid Peak, then traverse under steep cliffs prone to slides to get onto the Colonial Glacier. From the glacier climb to the saddle south of Pyramid Peak and scramble up the Class 3 north ridge to the summit. The panoramic vista from the summit includes the Picket Range across the Skagit valley, the immense white Neve Glacier of Snowfield Peak, and distant views to Logan, Buckner, Jack, Hozomeen, Baker, and other giants of the North Cascades.
